You rushed out, you got there early, you stood in line - and you bought Windows Vista, or the original Apple iPhone, or a big HD-DVD collection. And then the roof caved in.
Motorola Xoom (2011)
Even if you despise Apple and loathe the iPad, give credit where it's due: When the company advertises a feature, it works on day one. Motorola's Xoom, on the other hand, shipped without Flash (in the US anyway), MicroSD support and 4G connectivity (again, also in the US). And to get the free 4G upgrade, users will have to ship their tablets back to Motorola and leave the devices in the company's hands for at least six business days. Any bets on whether the Xoom's price will drop first?
